My quiet weekend

Kelly came over to scrap on Friday night. We watched more Sex & the City episodes while we goofed off.

Played one of my most favorite games this weekend. Jessica, Kelley, Jeff, came over to play with Jenna & I. We laughed so hard and played for 3 hours.


It was PJ night and we were all very tired so I didn't take a lot of photos.


Finally took some photos of two minis that I've had finished for quite some time. I went to Oregon with Dan & his mom's family back in 2005 for a family reunion. I had a lot of fun with paint and messy stuff while making it. You can see the full album here.


I took a great class with Kerry Lynn Yeary at Picture Me Perfect. This was the mini that she had us make. I changed it from a weekly book into my favorite photos that I took during January 2007. The rest of the album is here.


I watched the incredible movie Freedom Writers. It was so good, I watched it twice (two nights in a row). The message is so empowering. Go check it out! Oh I should warn that it is violent, but if I can handle it, so can you.

It hit me today that I have just a little over a month before I leave for my European trip (September 3rd). I went to REI on my lunch break today and was overwhelmed with all of the things that a traveler "needs."

Thanks for all of your wonderful comments. I really feel like I am so lucky to have found so many great people that share such a craft hobby. :D

I love both of your scrapbooks! You really have a great knack for it!

Also love playing Apples to Apples. But I don't have the game because I probably wouldn't have enough people to make it fun. But it's a good one!
